After 3 or 4 years of not going to this restaurant and having read recent good opinions about it we went to dinner , my wife and I. We were very dissapointed because of the irregular quality of the two dishes we commanded to share since at our age we are not big eaters. We had first vegetables , cooked... More

We moved to Barcelona a year ago and there is plenty of good cuisine in this town. But, Isabella's really stands out, due to several amazing dishes that no one can match. For starters, while croquettas are a dime a dozen in Barcelona, Isabella's versions will not disappoint you. Also, the salmon tartar is outstanding; tuna tartar is everywhere but... More

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

The place is quite expensive (92 euros for half dish of pasta, a burrata, two tagliatas and a bottle of wine; no deserts and nothing else) and if the service is not up to it, you can find better value for that price in a lot of places in Barcelona. We went on a sunday night and all the staff... More

This is our favorite Italian in Barcelona - living only 800m away, we go here often for the nice atmosphere, friendly staff and the good, contemporary food they serve. The burrata cheese is the best and served in a sweet way.

Probably most well known for the Tagliata, it's definitely worth a trip for that alone. High quality Italian with a Catalan feel. Nice mix of Italian, Mediterranean and Barcelona influence. The kitschy chairs and interior make you feel at home without overwhelming the senses (architecture, interior design and food in Barcelona; what more could you ask for). We could tell... More

The main attraction here is the atmosphere - warm, cozy interior and nice sunny terrace. The atmosphere is almost matched by the delicious italian food: favorites include the burrata (which doesn't come with enough salad btw, so ask for extra salad when ordering) and the tagliata - a yummy steak served with shaved parmesan and herbs. For dinner, reservations a... More

Isabella's is situated is in Sarrià-St Gervasi. So the commun tourists are far away and you can enjoy a nice and cosy atmosphere. The interior designer did a great job. The service was also very pleasant. But the main dishes have been a deception. The Pizza and Pasta had unfortunately little to do with italian standards. Also the wine list... More
